Alexis, I know what you mean about work life balance and perspective. I used to obsess about work and think about it in the after hours. Now I am so engrossed and busy in the evenings I could care less. That part I definitely like - the perspective part. I also think I couldn't be a stay home mom - my son is very social and I don't have the energy to keep up with him 24/7. Also, if raising him was my full time job then I would start obsessing about that
so maybe in a way its good to juggle both things - this way you can keep both in perspective. I guess I just wish I had a little bit more time to myself for work outs and what not. But I have to be realistic. I think that comes later when the kids are older.
I am so bad - I added baby aspirin to my post transfer medication list. I read on the Internet that high levels of estrogen can cause blood clotting and lower implantation chances. Aspirin is supposed to help with that. The evidence is inconclusive but my clinic did have me take it during my FET, just not during my fresh transfer. Anyway I emailed my embryologist who will read it on Monday and reply. If she tells me to stop I will, but I thought it couldn't hurt. The only downside is later on, too much blood flow to uterus can cause sub chorionic hematoma and bleeding during pregnancy. So I thought I would take it up to my beta and then stop. Anyway I don't think 3 nights on baby aspirin are going to hurt and on Monday my embryologist can tell me to stop if she wants me to.
They measured my estrogen during transfer today and it went up to 3600. Weird why would it do that? It came down after retrieval to 2300 and now back u to 3600. I guess the hCG shot in my system continued to stimulate my ovaries which produced more estrogen later on.
Do any of you ladies know how high your estrogen got in the fresh cycles?
